London, March 0. Yesterday was a
great day in Ireland. Parnellites and
Anti-Parnellites held numeroas meetings,
attended with broken heads and other di
versions. Parnell's meeting afc Newry
was a grand affair in point of numbers
and enthusiasm. Notwithstanding the
virtual prohibition of the bishop from at
tendance at the demonstrations and the
bitter denunciation of Parnell by the
clergy, not less than 5,000 persons were
present from town and country around
about The McCarthyites, with the aid
of the priests, tried to bold a counter
demonstration, but it amounted to very
little. Parnell bitterly denounced the in
terference of the clergy, and spoke hope
fully of Ireland's prospects of genuine
home rule. He asserted that Irishmen
must depend on themselves and not on
England for bringing about the accom
plishment of national government for
Ireland. His utterances were loudly
cheered. A McCarthyite in the rear of
the crowd, who shouted out something
derogatory to Parnell and waved a copy
of the bishop's pastoral, was immediately
attacked. He sought safety in flight but
was pursued and captured by a party of
Parnellite. who compelled him to kneel
down and eat the paper on which the
pastoral was printed.
Popular Acclaim for Parnell.
Parnell's journey to Newry was attend
ed with popular acclamation everywhere
except at Dundalk, where an unfriendly
demonstration prevented him from ad
dressing the people. At other places he
made short speeches, and at Newry he was
cordially received. He said that he was
confident that Ulster was sound for him,
as other provinces of Ireland were, and he
referred to the significance of deputations
being present from districts where every
dastardly means had been employed to
stifle public opinion. He severely criti
cised McCarthy for having traduced the
memory of John Mitchell, the Irish patriot
of '48, in his history. Numerous league
addresses were presented, and an open-air
meeting which followed passed resolu
tions strongly expressing confidence in
Parnell. Parnell reminded his hearers
that the Liberals had been as active co
ercion ists as the other party.
The Pistol Brought Into Flay.
"While a Belfast delegation of Parnell
ites were returning from Newry two shots
were fired at Land agree station from a
carriage, wounding two of the Belfast
men seriously. The weapon was not
found, although several persons were de
tained on suspicion.
"Sheevo" at Qneenstown.
A highly exciting and exceedingly dis
graceful scene occurred at Queenstown
yesterday on the occasion of the departure
of the Parnellite envoys for America.
When the Etruria arrived in the harbor
with John O'Connor and James J. O'Kel
ly on board, William Redmond and Henry
Harrison were at the wharf ready to join
their comrades. Hundreds of their ad
mirers and sympathizers had assembled
to bid them farewell, and the McCarthy
ites were out in strong force to counteract
the effect of any demonstration the Par
nellite faction might indulge in. As Har
rison and Reimond started toward the
tender to go on board the ship the Mc
Carthyites set up a chorus of groans.
Had to Fight Their Way Through.
The Parnellites resented this and a row
began on the quay which soon involved
the full strength of each faction. Every
body seemed to be provided with a stick
which he used with great vigor, and the
musicians utilized their instruments as
weapons. Blood flowed freely as the Par
nellite crowd fought its way toward
the tender, and many persons narrowly
escaped falling into the water in the heat
of the battle, as the two envoys embarked
on the little vessel. A number of other
passengers who were on the quay ready to
embark narrowly escaped injury in the
melee, and all unsparingly expressed
their disgust at the disgraceful scene.
Will Tax the Bishops and Priests.
Losdox, March 9. The McCarthyites
purpose to levy a contribution of 10 on
each bishop, and 4 on each priest as the
nucleus of a fund for the support of
A CARDINAL THEY DON'T LIKE.
Germany and Russia Want the Fope to
Loxdox, March 9. A dispatch from
Rome says that the German representative
at the Vatican is bringing to bear all the
influence he can in favor of the removal
of Cardinal Rampolla from the office of
pontifical secretary of state. Cardinal
Rampolla is the pope's second self in po
litical affairs, aud it is said to be largely
duo to his influence that Leo recently came
out as advising harmony between the
church and the French republic. Ram
polla is strongly opposed to the triple al
liance, chiefly because Italy belongs to it,
and he loses no occasion to make the pa
pacy felt in European politics.
His Holiness In a Dilemma.
Russia in this matter is in concert with
Germany, being offended because Cardi
nal Rampolla has stood out against the
introduction of the Russian language in
the Roman Catholic liturgy of Poland.
What the result of the intrigues may be
is doubtful, as the pope is anxious to
please Germany, and is very much at
tached to Rampolla.
SOME GOSSIP ABOUT ROYALTY.
German Alliance Unpopular in Englund
The French Mob's Chivalry.
London, March 9. The reported en
gagement of the Duke of Clarence, heir
presumptive to the British crown, and
Princess Marguerite, of Prussia, has called
out much hostile criticism among people
who think that the old royal families
need a little new blood instead of perpetu
ally intermurryiug with each other. The
duke and princess are both grandchild
ren of.Queen Victoria, and therefore first
They Ignored Battenberg.
Queen Victoria's liking for her German
relatives is causing a good deal of discon
tent in England, where there is a profound
ksntiment that the honors, and emolu
ments lavished on the alien princelings
wonld be better bestowed on natives of
Sreat Britain. Prince Henry of Batten
berg, who masquerades as the governor of
the Isle of Wight, and really acts as mes
senger to run errands for his royal mother-in-law,
is said to have been grossly in
sulted, as he calls it, at a place called Cal
bonrne, on the island, the insult consist
ing in the almost total ignoring of Batten
berg and his pretensious at a little local
celebration to which he invited himself,
without being accompanied by the
The Ruffianly French Mob.
Ex-Empress Eugenie's unfriendly re
ception in Paris, where she was at first
mistaken for the Empress Frederick, and
afterward insulted as soon as her identity
became known, was a great shock to her.
She has lost all the traces of her former
attractions, and has ceased even to cover
the ravages of time with cosmetics. To
the better class of Frenchmen she is an
object of pity, if not of sympathy, but the
mob seldom lose an opportunity to show
Palestine for the Israelite.
Lokdon, March 9. The movement for
colonizing the Jews in Palestine is meet
ing with considerable approval in Lon
don, the Duke of Westminster and other
distinguished people having agreed to
patronize it. There is a fair prospect that
a large portion of Palestine will be occu
pied by refugees from Russian persecu
tion, the sultan having, it is stated, de
clared himself pleased with the project.
Good Advice to Bismarck.
London, March 9. Berlin advices state
that Bismarck's presence in the reichstag
is confidently anticipated. The London
Times frankly advises the prince, in a re
cent article, to enter the reichstag if he
wishes to express his opinions plainly on
the affairs of state, instead of using the
columns of newspapers which he is sup
posed to control, but for whose utterances
he docs not assume open responsibility.
The prince, it is said, now seriously con
siders the acceptance of the latest offer
made to him, for Geestemunde, in Han
over. Henry Has an Anchor to Windward.
London, March 9 Prince Henry, broth
er of the kaiser, is proving himself an ex
pert acrobat in amateur theatricals, and
would probably be able to make his liv
ing in that way, in the event of being
thrown on the world. At a recent fair
gotten up among members and relatives
of the imperial house Prince Henry as
tonished the kaiser by his suppleness, go
ing through several of the performances
shown by acrobats on the stage.

All the Sketches Approved and Work to
Begin This Spring.
Chicago, March 9. Chief of Construc
tion Burnham having satisfied himself
that the exposition bcildings as sketched
by the board of architects can be erected
for the amount severally appropriated for
them, and having so reported to the board
of directors Friday evening, the board has
formally authorized him to proceed to
construct them as rapidly as possible.
Accordingly the sketches will be at once
returned to their authors to be elabor
ated into working plans. As fast as this
is done the contracts will be let and the
Flans for Four of the Structures.

mining building will bo ready in thirty
days. Mr. Cobb's plans for the fisheries
building, Mr. Jenny's plans for the hor
ticultural building, and Messrs. Adler
& Sullivan's plans for the transporta
tion building will be ready very little la
ter. The rest may be strung along during
the next ninety days. The contracts for
the four buildings will probably be ltt
within the next six weeks. Mr. Burn
ham's assistant, Mr. Graham, will start
for the east in a day or two with the
sketches of the eastern architects that he
may give verbal instruction concerning

An Epithet Which Caused the Killing of
a Wheeling Man.
Wheeling, W. Va., March 9. Drs.
George Baird and George J. Garrison, who
up to eighteen months ago were fast
friends, quarreled over an election in which
they were interested, and became bitter
enemies. Saturday they met and some
words passed between them. They were
separated, but met again, when Baird
with a revolver in his hand, said:
"Take that back, doctor."
"I don't have to take it back, you nig
garafied," Dr. Baird began.
Two Fatal Shots Fired.
Dr. Garrison then fired, and as Dr.
Baird slowly turned squareiy toward him
Garrison fired a second time. The ball
took effect in Baird's left eye, the first
shot having entered behind the right ear.
Dr. Baird walked into a store, said that
Dr. Garrison had shot him, took off his
gloves and was dead in ten minutes. Dr.
Garrison walked down the street, holding
his revolver, until he met a policeman to
arhom he surrendered himself. Dr. Baird
was graduated in James G. Blaine's class at
Washington and Jefferson college in
Alibis In the Hennessey Case.
New Orleans, March 9. The defense of
the alleged assassins of Chief of Police
Hennessey is an alibi. So far a good one
aas been testified to as to seven of the
men, and as to the other the state has
presented no proof against him. One of
she witnesses to the alibi was Lionel
Adams, counsel for the defense, who
wore that six of the prisoners were in
his company at a restaurant from about
ll p. in. to lit. m., which covers the time
of the murder.
Uncle Sam Has Tso Jurisdiction.
Washington Cur, March 9. The at
tention of the treasury department ha
been called to the shocking treatment to
which Hungarian laborers on a railroad
now in the course of construction near
Pocahontas, Va., are alleged to be sub
jected The matter was referred by Sec
retary Foster to Attorney General Miller,
who decides that there ara no United
States laws tliat cover the case, it being a
matter of state supervision.
